The Associated Press

North Dakota regulators have approved a pipeline that would move up to 100,000 barrels of oil a day from the state's oil patch.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota regulators have approved an oil pipeline that would move up to 100,000 barrels of oil a day from the state's oil patch.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the state Public Service Commission approved the NST Express Pipeline on Wednesday.

The oil pipeline is part of Texas-based NorthStar Midstream. The 23-mile-long pipeline is designed to move crude from a hub near Alexander to a terminal in East Fairview where it will interconnect to other oil pipelines that supply oil to refineries across the country.

The project cost is pegged at more than $60 million and is expected to be completed late next year.
